Multi tenant application using Typescript, Express and MongoDB

Let us create a multiple database application (multi tenant application)

Mutli tenant application structure.

Problem : Create an application to manage schools and colleges. Each school/college data should save in separate database. Also students in each years should save in separate collections.

I solved these problem by using `mongoose.connection.useDb` method and using collection_name parameter while creating the model.

Initial mongo setup is same, connect to a mongo db using mongoose.

public mongoUrl: string = 'mongodb://localhost/';

We do the trick in the model class

In the controller we call the createModel method with 2 parameters college_name as db name prefix and year as collection name prefix.

In the controller file, we receive COLLEGE_NAME from request header. It should be from session in real scenario.

public addNewStudent(req: Request, res: Response) {

The Database and collection names are decided on the request call only. So we can store the data into different database as per the user session.
